On Dreams

Standard

I was trying to
dilate a dream

connecting deep
taking time

the early afternoon
was suddenly dark

fingers sinking
into it wrenching

walking the mind
dumbfound rounds

and rounds
sleepwalker

on a pitfall
a dive into

nothingness
an upside down

Intertextures – Crossing Rivieras

Standard

*

transparency
is something I
share with fish

I’m suspended
at last a gracious
moment they

stick closer if I
hold in stillnes
even more come

what is there
re generation
wisdom shared

I wish I could
last forever in
salty waters

weightless

Crossing Rivieras

Standard

*

wellness downing

with the evening

lightly salty breeze

 

it’s a loud concert

around me waves

crashing every where

 

deep remote thunder

of the sea underneath

brought up by that

 

back and forth moving

crickets and cicadas

fighting for the solo

 

now that the city man

who couldn’t stop

talking has left

 

I’m laying on the cliff

open to the sky

a million pieces of

 

me scattered the last

rays of the day will

gather

Nata in sogno, Quaderni Californiani

Standard

*

vorrei essere casa
nel deserto

spalancata al nulla
in attesa

delle mie stesse ombre
immobile

vulnerabile al vento che
mi riempie

di nulla e di sospiri di terre
lontane

nata in sogno svanisco
mentre scrivo

Born in a Dream

Standard

*

I wish to be home
in the desert

wide open to nothingness
waiting

for my own shadows
immobile

vulnerable to the wind
filling me

emptiness and whispers of
far away lands

born in a dream I’m gone
as I write

Pregnant Cloud, 2015

Standard

*

I can’t stop
my steps
if every step
charges me up

verses overflowing
I’m the pregnant cloud
ready to pour as I sit
in front of this hot sun

I’ve my own shape
definite contoured
by blue patches

Italian Summer, Ferragosto 2015

Standard

*

mid day of August’s
mid month some echoes
of a church service

on a television where
there are very few visions
a small breeze rises

awakening me to
a tiny drip drop
a small precipitation

into myself until
an airplane breaks
the clouds in two

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Whispering, 2016

Standard

*

I like to think
of my memory
fixed as I age

having a better
recollection of
all it has been

while
never alone
to get broader eyes

looking at the now
and what’s beyond
to see the whole

picture but
all I want indeed
is to have these

beautiful ears
placed as jewels to
decorate me

to hear dogs laughing
and birds singing
to detect clearly

his love whispering
the deep silence

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Stillness And Dances, 2016

Standard

*

I satisfy myself
in circles of light
stillness and dances

it’s the music
within that slows
us down and we

wonder and return
to these lovely
planes

a step or two
to understanding
the sound

silence broken
by golden lights
we curl up

we are being
picked up

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Calm Waters, 2016

Standard

*

I dip into these
same calm waters
ahead of me

the mountain
and monumental
the building

where it was
all revealed
one day in my

teens the green
light of life and
the silence

as a solemn
soundtrack making all
things stilled

yet moving in life
a vibration such as
a dancing slow motion

images of bliss here
words are useless
there you need to be

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Curling up, 2016

Standard

*

It’s the spiral
I know the never
ending

movement
of one circle
after another

it’s that coming
back to that point
from a different

point of view
the lighthouse
over the ocean

the curling
of the waves
the undercurrent

us never still
his voice breathing
out and calling

us in a golden
band a nest of
fingers crossed
